Sky News has announced details of a new weekly political interview show to be hosted by Beth Rigby.
Starting in March, the show will air at 9pm on Thursday nights and see the broadcaster's political editor quiz "decision takers from all walks of life and people caught up at the coal face of change".
Rigby, who has been Sky's political editor for three years, said: "Much in our daily lives is shaped by decisions made in Parliament, which is why being Sky News's Political Editor is such a privilege.
"But I'm interested too about what happens beyond Westminster, and this flagship interview show will be the place where you'll hear from fascinating people with fascinating stories from all walks of life.
"I'm looking forward to welcoming a wide range of guests to discuss and debate the live issues, and provide a moment each week for more in depth-conversation away from the relentless rhythm of the daily news cycle."
Sky News head John Ryley added: "In six years at Sky News Beth has been at the centre of some of the most compelling news stories of our generation, put those in charge on the spot, and had a front row seat to history that has unfolded in this country.
"Now is the right time to ask more and to expand the way she can contribute to the Sky News output. Beth's standing and journalistic reputation are such that she will make Thursday nights on Sky News the destination for the big names, the big questions and the big headlines."
The news comes after the BBC News channel launched a new weeknight panel debate show, Context, in the 9pm hour.
